The class picture is the main reason I get the school pictures every year. I want to save them for my kids to have when they are older. Someone brought a bunch of my elementary school class pictures to our 20th reunion and it was awesome to see them.
Haha! I kind of hope they bring back the laser background from when I was in school. That background was awesome in that 90s everything neon way and my mom never let me get it! I would totally choose it for my kids one year and order her giant size prints of it.
My oldest is very sentimental and loves to look at his class pictures all the time. I agree with others, it will be fun to look at years from now. I love looking at mine elementary school pictures still!
Our oldest is in kindergarten, and I did get his preschool class pictures for the first two years. Now that we have two in school, and eventually four in school, I had to stop and think about whether I ultimately need a stack of 44 class pictures. They are definitely fun to see, but I don't think we will continue buying them. I do get their individual pictures, but I just order the digital image in my never-ending quest to reduce the amount of "stuff" we have, lol.
I like to get the smallest package they offer - mostly for the class photo, but also because those school portraits are so uniquely hilarious and adorable! If I know they'll be getting a yearbook with those same photos in it, though, I usually take a pass.
